Synopsis

Certain films seem to encapsulate perfectly the often abstract ethical situations that confront the media, from truth-telling and sensationalism to corporate control and social responsibility. Using these movies-including Ace in the Hole, All the President's Men, Network, and Twelve Angry Men-as texts, authors Howard Good and Michael Dillon demonstrate that, when properly framed and contextualized, movies can be a powerful lens through which to examine media practices. Moreover, cinema can present human moral conduct for evaluation and analysis more effectively than a traditional case study can. By presenting ethical dilemmas and theories within a dramatic framework, Media Ethics Goes to the Movies offers a unique perspective on what it means for media professionals to be both technically competent and morally informed.

HOWARD GOOD is the coordinator of the Journalism Program at the State University of New York at New Paltz. He is the author of, among other works, The Drunken Journalist, Girl Reporter, and The Journalist as Autobiographer. MICHAEL J. DILLON is a Professor of Communications at Duquesne University.
